VIDEO: Obama Scolds Reporter Who Interrupted Him

President Obama, visibly angry, scolded a reporter at the White House Rose Garden today after he was interrupted while announcing a new immigration policy.

“The next time I prefer you let me finish my statements before you ask a question,” Obama said.

The reporter who interrupted the president was the Daily Caller’s Neil Munro, who, according to TPM’s Brian Beutler (who was also in attendance) identified himself as an immigrant and then walked off.

Update: The Daily Caller tweets they are “proud” of their reporter.

Late Update: Neil Munro says he mistimed his question to Obama.
